AMR GT4's on Pole at both IMSA and China GT

Friday, October 11, 2019

American based Automatic Racing and CSJ Motorsport have saved the best performance of their IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge season so far  till last to claim overall pole position at tonights final round of the season at the Petit Le Mans meeting from Road Atlanta.

With young Indian racer Akhil Rabindra this time being joined by American racer Tom Long in the #09 CSJ Motorsport supplied car, a Qualifying lap time of 1:25:715 was enough by just over one tenth of a second to secure his and this teams first pole with the new AMR GT4 platform from the otherwise more dominant Ford Mustang of debuting Seb Priaulx

Seeing out this final race will be three AMR Vantage GT4's from the Florida based team with the new #97 car being piloted by Gary Ferrera and Kris Wilson from P14 on tonights grid and the older, normally aspirated #99 car of Ramin Abdolvahabi and B Waddell starting P23.

This race starts at 18:15 BST and is streamed live and free outside of the USA.

Over on the other side of the world and at the Shanghai International Circuit, AMR Partner team BSEM Asia Sonic Racing are preparing for their final two races of their China GT Championship season.

Having secured their first pole position and overall race win last time out at Tianjin, AMR factory driver Ross Gunn traded the top spot with fellow European based drivers before finally securing pole position in Q1 by just two tenths of a second. Team mate qualified the #618 in P11 for his starting role over the weekend.

Also featuring the return of the teams normally aspirated V8 #619 car at this final round, that car finished Qualifying in P16 and P11 places for both Saturdays and Sunday's races.
